I'm building my new PC shortly and I bought a 1TB HDD and a 250GB SSD which I plan to use together in my system. My motherboard supports Intel Smart Response Technology, though I don't entirely understand how it works or if that factors into which drive I should install my OS on. Any tips?
Just install Windows and your most used programs to the SSD and use the hard drive for personal files(documents/desktop/ect). You have no need for SRT unless you have a smaller SSD(under 128gigabytes or so).
Windows has a built in way to move may "users" folders to another drive or even network location.
Install OS and some programs you use a lot on the SSD anything else goes to the HDD. Intel Smart Response Technology (Intel SRT) is a technology that allows your SSD (usually 20-60GB) "cache" your HDD. This will "boost" your HDD's speed and theoretically it should perform like an SSD.
